GHS Training Course

Dec. 1, 2013 marked when employees were required to be trained on new workplace label elements and the updated SDS format.

SiteHawk’s GHS Training Course is designed to help organizations meet the first significant deadline brought on by GHS. Consisting of a video learning guide designed to keep your employees engaged and section breakdowns to ensure your employees effectively understand the material, the focus of SiteHawk’s GHS Training Course is to enhance worker comprehension of the chemical information conveyed on safety data sheets (SDS) and workplace labels.

SiteHawk’s GHS Training Course reviews:

  • Introduction to HazCom 2012 – what is “Right to Understand”
  • Signal Words and Labeling –what can be found on containers of hazardous materials
  • Pictogram Review – 9 pictures specifically designed to enhance hazard communication
  • Safety Data Sheet Review – elements and structure of the new 16 section format

Delivered in a SCORM-compliant package, the online course can also be deployed in your Learning Management System (LMS) to give your organization the ability to easily track and document employee progress. The package includes the GHS training video, section reviews, and a comprehension quiz.
